Black Republicans launch 2008 Election Educational Campaign

The National Black Republican Association has put up "Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican" billboards in Orangeburg, South Carolina and several counties in Florida.

In 2006, they received over one million hits on their website. In 2007 they received over one million hits and, in the first six months of 2008 they have already received nearly one and a half million hits, according to the group. The organization is also airing radio ads in battle ground states on stations that target black Americans exposing Senator Barack Obama as a far left-wing radical.

"...People are paying attention and the truth is finally getting out," writes Chairman Frances Rice.

The latest edition of the NBRA magazine, The Black Republican, contains the article, "A Covenant With Life: Reclaiming MLK's Legacy," by Dr. Alveda C. King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"My grandfather, Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr., or 'Daddy King', was a Republican and father of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who was a Republican," states Dr. King in the Special Election Editon.
